Simultaneous submissions between Glass Mountain and Shards are not allowed.

Submit 1 to 5 previously unpublished poems. In your submission, please type no more than 1 poem per page with a 10 page maximum. The text should 12-point font, and files should be saved in DOC, DOCX, or RTF format.

While we accept and will read all styles of poetry, we generally publish contemporary poetry that is lyric-based with narrative tendency. We tend to avoid rhymed, romanticized poetry, but we don't automatically discount any poem.

In your cover letter, please include a short biography of 50 to 100 words written in third-person, which tells us about you and any previous publications of your work. Should you be selected, we will include this on our contributors' page.

We will respond to your submission within 8 months.
